Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot has dropped the biggest hint yet that Watch Dogs could launch on next-generation consoles in addition to Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC.

Speaking on Spike TV, Guillemot confirmed that the game was being played on a high-end PC during Ubisoft's E3 conference.

But when asked which platforms Watch Dogs would eventually release on, Guillemot stumbled, saying:

"[Watch Dogs] is going to come on PS3, 360, PC and, er, we'll see."

Speculation ran rife yesterday following Watch Dogs' reveal, with many suggesting the game could be a next-gen title.

However, Ubisoft's press website was later updated to confirm that Watch Dogs would launch on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC.

"It's going to be very different to the games we've done in the past. More social, more open," Guillemot said.

If this game doesn't end up on WiiU I will be very surprised. I've seen enough clues already, and hearing about the Smart Glass implementation is one more piece to the puzzle.

Just reading up on the social features sounds a lot like what Nintendo Network is aiming for, and there was a bit of confusion to start with as to whether this was next or current gen, so maybe it's both?

Could it be on PS4 and XB3? Sure, but 2014 is a long way away, and I don't think Ubisoft would be developing for up to six major platforms at once.

I'm still expecting this to show up at the software showcase, or at least in the near future. If Nintendo do that one thing, then that's what people will remember.

Would make a lot of sense for the Wii U too but graphics aren't going to be as great on Xbox n ps3 if that's how it looked on a high end pc think this should bypass this gen n hold out for next this looks like a game were graphics are needed.

As long as it's on PC, I'm happy. :)

Maybe this means and/ or as well wii u? It is a good fit conceptually the whole Smart phone/ tablet hacking thing works with the controller, bu this is just me hoping here.
